I've been teaching for 9 years. I started in the inner city teaching middle school. I then moved on to a rigorous, nationally ranked high school. I teach mostly English to juniors and seniors. I teach both core and International Baccalaureate (IB). I also teach an IB course on Spanish Literature.
I love a well researched lesson. I spend my summers reading books about the books I'm about to teach. I get ready with Norton Critical editions and with (Harold) Bloom's guides. I also am big on culture. As a person of color, I find it important to bring up certain topics and have created lessons that aren't afraid to get real. Teaching Spanish has been fun--I was tapped to teach this class because I'm an English literature teacher who speaks Spanish--so I bring a literature background, rather than language acquisition to the lessons. I also like things to look beautiful.
